Corruption was the third story in the I, Davros series released by Big Finish Productions.

Publisher's summary[]

"Logically, the war ends with one form of life in utter control of the world. All other life forms gone. That is the goal — that is the only true victory!"

Now established within the Scientific Elite, Davros and his team are pushing the boundaries of Kaled experimentation further and further forward. Access to Thal DNA spearheads an entirely new field of research for Davros, and as he becomes more and more intrigued by genetic mutations, others around him begin to fear him, his drive and his obsessive need for power.

Meanwhile he must learn to cope with betrayal and political manoeuvrings that will leave him changed forever...

  • The name of the Thal state is the Thal Republic.
  • DNA makes up living creatures on Skaro and all living creatures on Skaro have a double helix.
  • Drammankin Lake is now known as the Lake of Mutations.
  • Davros determines that, in spite of their outward resemblance, the Kaleds and the Thals' evolution diverged a hundred million years prior to the Thousand Year War. This is approximately the era when life first evolved on Skaro.
  • Most lifeforms that existed on Skaro have become extinct. Consequently, natural foodstuffs are a rare commodity.
  • Davros is now a Coordinator within the Scientific Elite.

  • Davros developed a device which cured cancer one year earlier.
  • The Supremo orders Fenn to destroy Davros' laboratory. Calcula then exposes herself and Fenn to a massive dose of radiation.
  • Skaro's sun can no longer be seen from the Kaled Dome due to the high levels of radiation in the atmosphere. According to Valron, there has not been a proper summer for the last three years as a result.
